Cheli es santa (Cheli is a Saint) is a multi-media installation consisting of a performance video in which I constructed a chair by using my body to balance it in place while sitting on it. The chair has carved inscriptions of violent phrases in Spanish that got impressed into my skin during the performance. 

This project is about women retaining emotional balance and strength while being abused, a role both passive and active requiring tremendous emotional and physical effort.
